General News (Mon Nov 11): has been named the starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, according to interim head coach Bill Callahan.
Week 11: vs New York Jets
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Washington Redskins have officially committed to rookie Dwayne Haskins as their starting quarterback for the remainder of the 2019 campaign. This announcement came during the team's bye week, following a brutal 1-8 start to the season. In limited action this year, Haskins has been significantly worse under center than either Case Keenum or Colt McCoy, but this is a decision made with one eye on the future. In the short-term, Washington's already horrific passing attack is poised to struggle with Haskins at the helm. Through his first 44 pass attempts of his career, Haskins has 0 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and has posted a measly 2.4 adjusted yards per attempt. Terry McLaurin remains the team's number-one target moving forward, as his dominance in Washington's passing attack cannot be understated. McLaurin was also a collegiate teammate of Haskins last season at Ohio State, whom Haskins specifically requested the Redskins draft alongside him. Paul Richardson is the team's next-best receiving option, but the volume and quality of targets available aside from McLaurin are uninspiring. Washington's offensive line ranks amongst the league's worst, which will not bode well for a young and developing quarterback this weekend in a typically run-heavy offensive attack. The New York Jets' pass defense faces a remarkably-high number of pass attempts, in large part thanks to the team's impressive run defense, and their efficiency numbers against the pass are respectable overall. The Jets' pass-rush is an average unit overall, headlined by an emerging Jordan Jenkins with five sacks on the edge. At linebacker, C.J. Mosely is going to miss week 11's game due to a groin injury. In his place, James Burgess has started at linebacker. Burgess is a horrific pass defender, and teams have exploited this over the middle in recent weeks with Mike Gesicki and Rhett Ellison, two underwhelming fantasy producers, to post 15.5 and 7.2 PPR points, respectively. The Jets' secondary has been a strength of this team, with Marcus Maye, Jamal Adams, and Brian Poole leading an impressive unit, but recent injuries have left the unit exposed elsewhere. Trumaine Johnson made his way to the IR two weeks ago, and Darryl Roberts' status is in question this weekend due to a calf injury. In his place, expect either Arthur Maulet or Blessuan Austin, both of whom are inexperienced and uninspiring reserves, to enter the starting lineup at cornerback. Last weekend, Daniel Jones carved up the Jets for 300 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions in a shockingly-strong performance by the rookie. This weekend, another rookie, Dwayne Haskins, will need to exploit these few relative weaknesses in the Jets' defense if he has any hopes of success with the odds stacked against him here in week 11.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 9 vs BUF (15 / 22 / 144 / 0 / 0 pass, 3 / 14 / 0 rush)
Dwayne Haskins had a very "game-manager" type of game today. It was clear the coaching staff made an effort to implement some easy reads and quick throws into the gameplan. Majority of Dwayne's day was spent handing the ball off, but game-script forced him into more throws. His longest completion was twenty-two yards but most of the damage was done after the catch. Dwayne's day could have been better if he would have completed his endzone throw to Paul Richardson. All three endzone trips ended with field goals. Maybe he can build off of this performance, but his limitations were clear against a tough Buffalo defense.
2019 Week 8 vs MIN (3 / 5 / 33 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Dwayne Haskins came in the game to replace Case Keenum and looked completely unprepared. He attempted five passes and completed three, but they were all fairly safe throws. The offense only generated three points in the second half with him leading the offense. Most drives were stalled as Dwayne looked indecisive in the pocket. Too many 3-and-outs and negative plays left the offense completely unplugged in the second half. Dwayne had an awful interception throwing high to a wide open received over the middle of the field. He will need to clean up his decision making and play with more command if he gets the start next week.
2019 Week 4 vs NYG (9 / 17 / 107 / 0 / 3 pass, 2 / 23 / 0 rush)
Dwayne Haskins had a rough start to his rookie season as he faced the Giants today. Coming in to replace the starter did not erase the issues that Washington is facing weekly. Dwayne was often under pressure, behind schedule on downs, and at times looked lost going through his progressions. He threw a pick-six in the third quarter forcing a pass over the middle. Then added two more interceptions in the fourth quarter trying to make things happen that simply weren't there. His supporting didn't provide much assistance as his skill position players are average at best. If he can't get some form of a run game, it will be tough for him to keep this offense afloat moving forward.
Latest NewsRedskins | Dwayne Haskins earns promotion (Mon Nov 11, 02:34 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins has been named the starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, according to interim head coach Bill Callahan. Our View: That's the only move that makes sense for Washington. Haskins is rough around the edges as a quarterback but he needs time and experience starting in the NFL if he's going to be their franchise quarterback.
link to story Redskins | Dwayne Haskins expected to keep starting job (Wed Nov 6, 08:34 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins is expected to be the starting quarterback for the team's Week 11 game, according to sources. Our View: The team is going forward with Haskins as the starter, which at least will give the next head coach some more pro film to evaluate his strengths and weakness and craft a scheme and surroundings to suit him. It won't be great for his college teammate Terry McLaurin despite their experience together, because Haskins hasn't proven to be as effective a passer in the NFL (yet) as Case Keenum.
link to story Redskins | Washington not ready to name Week 11 starter (Mon Nov 4, 03:15 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins isn't a lock to make a second straight start following his team's Week 10 bye, according to head coach Bill Callahan Monday, Nov. 4. Our View: Haskins wasn't terrible in Week 9 and Washington has a bye in Week 10. We'll see if we get clues when the team resumes practicing next week. Callahan said Monday, Nov. 4, he'll take his time and make an announcement after the bye.
link to story Redskins | Dwayne Haskins held to 144 yards (Sun Nov 3, 03:14 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins went 15-for-22 for 144 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against Buffalo Bills in Week 9. He also rushed for 14 yards on three carries. Our View: Haskins was only marginally successfully, albeit against a tough defense on paper. If he has to start after the bye, one hopes he'd be better prepared, although this offense is going to emphasize the run anyway. He doesn't appear to be able to support Terry McLaurin's early season value.
